Tax return processing to begin soon in Colorado

Voters approved lowering the state's income tax to 4.4% in November's election.

DENVER — The Colorado Department of Revenue (CDOR) said processing for the majority of state income tax filers will begin no later than this Friday.

People can file their tax returns now through all methods with the exception of the state's Revenue Online portal, CDOR said. Revenue Online will be accessible no later than Feb. 22, according to CDOR.

The department said the delay in processing tax returns was due in part to voters approving to lower the state's income tax from 4.5% to 4.4%, along with multiple legislative changes. Those factors made for a larger end-of-year programming workload, CDOR said.

“The Department’s employees are working to resolve the situation as fast as possible to reduce any inconvenience this may have for taxpayers, said Mark Ferrandino, Executive Director of the Department of Revenue. “We are committed to making sure our systems are thoroughly tested to prevent any errors that could result in additional delays in processing returns and refunds for Colorado taxpayers after the fact.”

Any filers needing to amend or file taxes for years prior to 2022 can still do so. The processing delays only affect 2022 taxes being filed.
